Product Description

A stunning original set of pastel drawers…

This is such a beautiful piece! Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that this dates to the mid to late part of the 20th century, circa 1970s. Offered in its original and used condition, the chest still houses some remnants of the original pastels!. It’s a cabinet that today could serve many of functions, that being in a retail environment or even for personal storage

The cabinet is structurally very good, being ‘weighty’ and sturdy, yet elegant in its nature. It is a beautiful looking piece, added with its surface patina and tatty nature in areas. Made in what we think is pine, the drawers all fit in their original slots and are generally smooth moving in and out (the odd few are a little sticky, yet nothing that some WD40 or wax wouldn’t fix). The entire piece is pretty clean and tidy, yet inside there are remnants of old pastels and their storage materials (such as cardboard). These of course could be easily removed, but we thought we would leave what was left, in its original condition. A quick clean would really spruce this piece up…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. In general the cabinet is structurally strong, however there is a surface patina that includes surface scars, knocks and small areas of wood chipping across the piece. We think this is what gives it its character! The one notable point we’d like to highlight is the bottom of the cabinet, where there are some chipped areas of wood and some tatty areas to the base. We don’t believe this is detrimental to the overall structure or indeed the look and feel. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections

This cabinet is great for storage and display…
